Michaela Fendrock

Graduate Student in the MIT/WHOI Joint Program
mfend[at]mit.edu

Michaela is a graduate student who uses proxy system modeling to study climate change in the late Pleistocene. She models proxies of precipitation in the Southwestern United States and how icebergs carry sediment during Heinrich Events.


Adam Jost

Research Scientist
abjost[at]mit.edu

Adam Jost manages the McGee Lab facilities. He is interested in exploring questions about the co-evolution of life and the environment over geologic time using isotope geochemistry. His ongoing work revolves around ocean anoxia & acidification during mass extinction events, Neoproterozoic glaciations, and the impact of diagenesis on isotope proxies.


Christopher Kinsley

Postdoctoral researcher
ckinsley[at]mit.edu

Christopher is a postdoctoral researcher using inorganic geochemistry to explore ocean chemistry and past climate changes. His current research includes reconstruction of dust accummulation rates in marine records from the east and west African margin using uranium and thorium isotopes, and development of stable barium isotopic measurements and applications to marine environmental samples.
